's that? roads, bridges, green energy, efficient buildings. you know, after a decade of bloodshed and combat abroad, americans re-elected a president who ended one war and is going to end another one. america voted for social change, for the first time in the nation's history, voters approved marriage equality measures. they did it in not just one state, but three states. and in minnesota, voters rejected a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. voters across the country are in line with the president of the united states when it comes to these equal rights. these equal rights. >> for me, personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that i think same-sex couples should be able to get married. >> so in the end, voters chose to move forward, not to go back to the failures of the past. on a number of different issues. it was a message that president obama understood very well last night. >> i believe we can seize this future together, because we are not as divided as our politics suggest. we're not as cynical as the pundits believe. we are greater than the su

and the truth is, they are brutal. you look what is happening in the iranian energy area, not only the fact that they're able to sell, you know, less than 50% of what they were selling before. it is that their production, their output is down from over 4 million barrels a day to 2.6 million barrels a day. part of the reason for that is precisely because of the sanctions, the inability to continue to invest in the energy infrastructure, the inability to continue to pump and store oil as they shut down oil fields that may not be so easy for them to recoup. you look what is happening to the currency, the devaluation. there are some estimates that the currency is being devalued by half every two months. think about what that means. it means that what you're buying, when you go and you buy something it costs you twice as much. it means what you have in the bank is worth half as much. if this is continuing to happen, it is bound to have an effect on the society as a whole whole. look at what the supreme leader has been saying over the last couple weeks. on more than one occasion he has explicitly

. talk about energy independence. there should be an american energy independence bill and, for example, the renewable industry desperately needs the extension of the production tax credit. if they don't get it they're dead. they literally are dead. they need that. we should be doing everything we can to promote renewables. we're not going to get that from the republicans in congress unless we give them the keystone pipeline. here's the environmental base -- >> forsaking -- >> hates the keystone pipeline but the reality of it is, that's the type of horse trading that has to go on when you don't have leverage that you have on -- you have leverage on immigration because 71/29. republicans can read the 71/29. >> it's not even leverage. >> i would be curious to know your thoughts on this. the president i think is really a centrist and i think -- i won't say has disdain for the ultraleft wing of the democratic party but is, you know -- will give up their priorities to make a grandeur bargain on a number of things. i think immigration will be a really interesting piece. i think that that's al

businesses are looking for. it's a plan to keep us on the cutting edge of invasion and clean energy and balance our budget in a clean and responsible way. we face a series of deadlines that require us to make major decisions on how to pay down our deficit. decisions that will have a huge impact on the future. i worked on cutting a trillion dollars worth of spending. but aze said over and over again we can't cut our way to prosperity. we have to combine spending cults with revenue. and that means asking the wealthiest americans to pay a little more in taxes that's the way we did it when bill clinton was president. all the increed yents of a strong middle class and a strong economy. i've put forward a detailed plan that allows us to make these investments by reducing our deficit by $4 trillion in the next decade. i refuse to accept any aoh 3r0e67 that is not balance abalanced. i will not ask students or seniors or the middle class to pay down the entire deficit. this was a central question in the election and on tuesday we found out that the majority of americans agree with my aproach
with the fire wall strategy spending about half of the convention dollars in energy. the three fire walls deutsch of florida, ohio and virginia which aside from indiana and north carolina is more appointed to victories of 2008 were the lowest percentage stays for barack obama. they have to those states together have 60 electoral votes they would appear to have to be entered 32 electoral votes without them he would have 272 which would meet only one other state would have tipped. there is not a likely candidate as you look down the percentages in this election. but it was nonetheless close. and i think it is this proved to be effective if you carry committees currently carrying florida by 46,000 votes and by 107,000 virginia by 100,000. the two injured 53,000 votes margins are responsible for his big electoral vote margin. it is a classic example of a high-risk strategy. the obama strategist are now going to be healed with some appropriateness as berlin and for employing the strategy. if a few numbers turn out a little differently they might be excoriated, but the fact is that they succeed
candidates talk about making us more energy independent. there are a lot of things we can do that might lead to compromise. two things have been done by the administration. the cap a standards, when fully implemented, will reduce the need for importing oil. the greenhouse gas standards have changed the way power plants have the function. that, plus the green market force of the decline of natural gas prices, has led to a lot of change. senator portman has spent a lot of time on energy efficiency for buildings. the state that has the lowest per-capita consumption of energy when it comes to non- transportation, you will never guess. california, who would have thought? >> i would have thought new york. >> exactly. why? california's per capita consumption -- 44% of our energy consumption is heating and cooling buildings, whether residential, commercial. 35% is transportation. california, in 1978, passed building standards under then- governor brown, who was known for this, governor moonbeam. every building had to pass energy standards to make california very efficient. these are the kind of thin
2% of wage earners but go to investments in infrastructure and clean energy and other. >> i'm not talking about whether or not the president gets his jobs bill passed i'm talking about the fiscal cliff and you're not disputing the assertion that 200,000 fewer jobs will be created if the president gets his way. it's not small to 200,000 families. >> the president said we can we can't afford to extend tax breaks to the wealthiest 2%. we have to reduce our deficit which savings from not extending those tax cuts would go toward. you have to look at the president's overall package which would create more jobs than extending the tax cuts because the c.b.o. shows that tax cuts to the top 2% of american earners is a highly inefficient way of helping our economy, it just not have the economic impact that giving tax cuts to the middle class does. and that's been a president that's been the president's approach all along. >> at what point does the white house plan on providing the president's whereabouts on the night of september 11, 201. >> as you know the incident in benghazi, the at
energy in ohio. we are a manufacturing state, of course. it means medical device and so many other kinds of advanced manufacturing. we are moving in that direction well. >> molly, having covered the campaign, what are you expecting to see start be put in the pipeline in terms of a legislative agenda. once the fiscal budget conversation is ended. >> it's interesting to hear someone like senator brown talking about this. i think you have, among democrats, a sense they did win the policy argument in this election. i'm listening to this economic policy debate. i think you can go around and around and around with that. what's new is democrats feel like they won the argument on raising taxes. in the past, you have had, this drives the left crazy. the democrats feel if you get called a tax raiser, you can't win. democrats have millions and millions and millions of dollars in their campaigns, calling them tax hikers and they still won. i know this is something senator brown believes, but democrats not as liberal are edging toward the perspective. the question is, sort of whether the republicans
women in the senate, things may get done. you also have a lot of energy of new senators. there is a big scramble up there. my overriding role is that if you are thinking about the fiscal cliff right now, what you are in the white house or you are the mitch mcconnell, you have to consider that voters in exit polls are saying that they're willing to take higher taxes, but they think government is too big. it is there. it is within reach. but john boehner has to be given some kind of cover so he can bring 140 republican votes with him. it will be very difficult to do a. obama will have to immediately decide whether he wants to go off the cliff with the bush tax cuts, or if he will try to get something big and mushy like tax reform. it will have to be massaged in such a way through increased revenue and more money flow and fees. anything to avoid that horrible thing called a tax increase. >> we heard the last panel talked a little bit about redistricting and the impact on partisanship, especially in the house. the senate has gotten more ideological itself after last night. the democrats com
? caller: i think jobs. included in that will be energy, moving forward on a lot of different fronts. renewable energy to some -- also feels if they can be done responsibly. health care can yield many jobs. i think obamacare will be good. i think all of these will really energize jobs. it will be a positive thing for the american people. host: we will move onto native who is a republican in florida. caller:my name is nat. i crossed the aisle to the democratic side. the reason for it is because i believe the president of's agenda is on a positive role. it takes time to correct the course of this country. by the time his actions of three years ago catches up, it will probably be his sixth year in office. then you will probably start seeing the yield of all of the effort he put an two or three years ago. some of us really want to be able to eat that big bird. i think we woke up in the morning and realize some people are going to have to realize how to season their crow and enjoy eating at. if we do not continue to stay on the president's course, we will find our difficulties will not an
the time. they want to move on to cleaner fights on energy reform or other things and have this off of the deck. >> okay. chris, let me bring you in. you heard a.b. say that grover norquist, who is not an elected leader surmised there's no mandate. the vice president actually on a ballot, here's what he believes came down on tuesday. he said in part, there was a clear sort of mandate about people coming much closer to our view about how to deal with tax policy. i just think he it's going to take time for the republicans to sort of digest what the consequences are for them internally. what's your reaction to at least biden believing there was a mandate for their tax policy? it shows in our exit polling that a significant number of people were okay with a tax increase for people who make over $250,000. >> my perspective is elections have consequences, and to the winner there is a certainly significance that follows from it. when you look at the exit polls in particular with the one you just referenced, 60% of the voters sided with the president's position on raising taxes on those mak
on foreign oil. and on energy and all of those things will help. but the key issue here is how do we make our labor internationally competitive? to do that you have to come up with new ideas, new tax cuts, incentives for industry and things like that. that will take some work from congress. and, you know, i feel like that is what they need to do. and it is the same old project, the same old system, it does not fit for today. is that simple. host: nancy cook. caller: that is a fascinating point. we have had these bush era tax cuts are almost over a decade now. the tricky thing about the tax code is at once you introduce changes to it, it is really hard to change them back and temporary tax cuts often become more permanent ones, and the caller raises a great point about thinking about, what should the tax code will look like rather than all of these temporary things adding up -- adding both parties are concerned. -- i think both parties are concerned. both parties say there would like to bring down the corporate tax rate to 28%. and the republicans want to do something or it would create a diff
this is incredibly tiring. but you know what, you drive energy from the good work that so many people do around this commonwealth. i could not be so from -- more fortunate in the friends and supporters i have had in 15 years. i'm going to add lib one more thank you, i want to think people who waited for hours and hours -- thank people who waited for hours and hours.
